School Closure

The school is now closed to the vast majority of pupils. This is a partial closure and we remain open to younger pupils whose parents are key workers. Following updated Government advice S4-6 pupils will no longer be able to access school to complete SQA coursework and assignments. We are awaiting an update from the SQA but in the meantime we would ask that all S4-S6 do not attend school. For all pupils learning will continue online.
Our Admissions Registrar remains available to assist any parents who would like to enquire or apply for an August 2020 start. Please email


Medical Ethics Seminar 2020

​On Wednesday 4th March the Hutchesons’ RMPS Department hosted a Medical Ethics Seminar.

The event was attended by S5 and S6 pupils from Hutchesons’ Grammar and Edinburgh Academy.
We were delighted to welcome two very engaging and informative speakers: Dr Radha Sundaram, consultant anaesthetist at the Royal Alexandria Hospital and Clinical Lead for NHS Blood and Tissue talking on organ donation and posing challenging ethical dilemmas for the pupils to consider and Professor Roger Downie, Biological Sciences University of Glasgow discussing the ethics of embryology and uses of human embryos in science.
The pupils enjoyed their taste of a university style seminar, debating the ethical issues presented and posing their own.
